Here's What's in Store for Your Love Life This Month According to Your Zodiac
(March 21 to April 19)
Let old love die a natural death, along with all the bad juju 2016 brought on. It isn't the easiest thing to say bye-bye to old baggage, but if you peel off the Band-Aid of old hurts now, you'll have the rest of the year to enjoy a fresh start and a clean slate. Bury the hatchet when it comes to ex-boyfriends, ex-crushes, and ex-loves. 2017 is promising you a lot of good change, but before that comes along, you've got to commit to never looking back.
(April 20 to May 20)
Don't rock the boat, Taurus—you're in a pretty awesome place as it is. It may not seem like you've got the best love life ever right now, especially if you're a single girl who can't wait to meet her match or if your relationship is getting *yawn* super boring. Here's your challenge: flip your perspective and consider what is working for you. We promise you, there's a lot that's actually pretty cool and this calm, no drama zone where you're at is an incredibly enviable to most lovelorn folks.
(May 21 to June 20)
You don't have to put up with a bad situation any longer, Gemini. New Year's resolutions don't always work, but regardless of that, promise yourself that you're never settling for less than what you deserve, especially when it comes to your love life. Your heart may be weepy at the moment, so trust your mind to get you out of sordid circumstances at the moment. Your rational, logical side is your saving grace right now—justify the decision to aim higher and ask for more and your heart will eventually follow.
(June 21 to July 22)
Do you keep falling for a certain type? Break free of the mold and open your mind and heart to a wider range of looks, personalities, attitudes, backgrounds, and beliefs. You don't have to pin your ideal partner down to a stereotype, Cancer. When you box yourself (or him) in, you may miss out on a lot of opportunities for love that can bring exciting changes to your life. Meet new people, expand your social circle, and know that you're not required to commit to any one person straight away. Keep yourself free.
(July 23 to August 22)
January may test your patience as far as love goes—and we all know how you love moving things forward when they seem to stagnate. Every relationship has its uncomfortable moments. When things don't go your way, do you give up easily and move on without trying to make it work? This year is asking you to resist the temptation to jump ship straight away and to hang in there. If you've wanted to make a connection with a guy who's been hard to get a hold of, give it time.
(August 23 to September 22)
Commitment is the main issue this month. How into your relationship are you, really? To make things work—through long-distance relationships, issues with the parentals, or through stressful times at school—you're going to have to go all-in and make sure your partner's just as committed as you are. The "struggle" doesn't end when you and your guy finally get together...a relationship involves just a new level of effort from both of you. Have a serious talk to figure out each other's expectations—make sure you are both on the same page.
(September 23 to October 22)
It's one thing to get super obsessed about your celeb crush, your favorite fandom, or your token 1D love...it's a whole other issue when you're crazy obsessed over someone IRL. Keep calm, girl. Yes, you're completely infatuated over your seatmate's brother's football teammate, but don't treat him like an out-of-reach celebrity to fawn over behind the scenes. He's a real person—just like you. Get a hold of reality, sprinkle yourself with a serious dose of maturity, and make a commitment not to fangirl when you're finally introduced.
(October 23 to November 21)
Keep your options open, Scorpio. Now is not the time to zone in on just one guy. Getting too serious too quickly may just leave your heart broken, especially when you're way more into him than he's into you. Know that you've got a ton of options as far as relationships go. There's no need to tie yourself down to just one guy at the moment. Play the field wisely, guard your heart just enough, and keep yourself open to the many delicious possibilities that are available to you on the love front this year.
(November 22 to December 21)
If you've had some rough experiences with some immature guys before (sigh, high school guys—what do you do with them?), it's time to change things up and redefine your "ideal." Guys who can't take commitment seriously are great for group hangs, summer flings, and the occasional flirt-a-thon over text. But when you find yourself falling and he becomes unavailable or elusive, it’s time to rethink your love life strategy. Finding yourself commitment-ready? Go for someone who's mature enough to handle something a little more serious.
(December 22 to January 19)
When was the last time you sat down and traced the history of your love life? Go back in time to your first crush, your first kiss, or your first relationship. Looking back on the ups, the downs and the major failures can give you a good sense of where you are now. You've grown a lot over the last couple of years and you deserve a pat on the back for surviving your love history. Going back in time can empower you to decide on where you want your love life to go next.
(January 20 to February 18)
Sometimes, love makes absolutely no sense. This month, abandon logic (even for a moment) and just go with your heart—even if it means going for a guy who you would never, in your right mind, ever go for. Keep your head above water, make smart decisions, but leave yourself some room to let your feelings lead the way. It takes a brave dreamer to trust the heart—it's not always easy! Allow yourself to make mistakes, sometimes the highs of an unexpected love are actually worth it.
(February 19 to March 20)
Take your time this month, Pisces. Maybe your love life is at a standstill for good reason. Self-preservation is kicking in as the New Year rolls in, and sets the tone for the rest of the year. Take careful, planned steps when it comes to choosing who you go out with, who you take to prom (or whose prom you choose to go to), and even who you don’t let into your heart. Your love life will experience movement, but only when you've developed enough self-awareness. 2017 is calling you to analyze love situations before diving in.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
